The wife said it wouldn't fit, but I got it in there anyhow... in the workshop!! Local business was getting rid of this and I got it for scrap price. Gave it a new battery and it works. Goes from 4 1/2" to 84". Weighs about 600 pounds and Stands 94" tall and just barely fit through the shop door. Plan on giving it a good cleaning and replacing some of the old wiring and hoses. Rick

Sounds like a great deal to me. That lift will surely come in handy.

Nice, that will come in handy often. This will sound odd, but do you have a pic of the capacities plate?

Yep, that's me... A safety nut. :rolling:

No, I was just going to help translate if there was anything weird on there.

Nice score on the lift.

Handy thing to have around.

I got myself one about a year and a half ago. Use it all the time.

I made up a pallet, with clip on ramps, and tie down strap hooks.

Once the GT is on and secured, I lift it up, and the slide horses

under the pallet. Makes working on them so much nicer.

May have to rearrange my pallet rack and start stacking tractors. Would love to have some floor space back. Rick

That particular deck is very rare to find. I have a 50' deck off of a cub 782 that could be adapted. The difficult part would be getting the wife to push it around the yard. Rick

The battery that you replaced it with, is it the same weight?

That's a lot of lift capacity. I was thinking much less.

For safety, keep in mind that the tips of the forks is not where they say it can lift 1500 :D

(Approx 500 lbs less for every 4" forward)

Nice find!  Will beat me to it but it will be a great device to save your back and work on the tractors at a more comfortable level.

It is a 12 volt system and I installed a deep cycle marine battery. It has a built in charger that I will need to check out.
I doubt that I will ever put 1500 lbs. on it. But I am well aware of load centers and lifting capacity variations and counter-balancing requirements. Thanks for being concerned about my safety. Rick
